My mother is proud to do her best Vanna White impersonation and show off the completed Guest House!
She says she hasn't slept so well for years...both with the front door open (the magnetic screen door keeps the 'squeeters out) and closed.
A coat of plaster in a couple of weeks will polish off the outside.
You can see that Cob can accommodate easily all the conveniences of modern technology...if you choose to include them.
Here, Mom is holding a table lamp with a 6W LED bulb, plugged into the wall, which is wired for 12V DC (don't try that conventional hair dryer!)
This is the view from the larger south-west facing window...the greenhouse surrounding the first cob building.
And here is a view from the Garden of the Guest House (aka Grozel House, since Grozel [pictured] is the Romanian word for Grandmother and the name my daughter uses for my mom).
The metal roof has already proven itself to be efficient at catching rain; we had only a mm or two, but the gutter and hose system filled up a 75 gallon barrel completely! Much needed during our very dry summers here on Lasqueti.
Our Cob Village
We'll try to keep you updated on all the latest activity here at Lasqueti's Cob Village...
